more money can be made in a bear market if you can identify a stock that has a chance to deliver real value. Bull markets lift all stocks so it becomes progressively more difficult to determine which Co.s represent real value, everything gets blurry and eventually the market tanks and the majority get killed. In bear markets everything is crud until proven otherwise but once value is uncovered investors with little else to make money on will jump in and a stock like NQ could really fly.

I think if NQ can deliver decent ore grade holes it should easily defy negative market sentiment and we could be onto the next market darling.
